Space device, artificial intelligence among projects at GVSU engineering showcase
Posted on April 17, 2018
A leak repair device for astronauts, a chess game that uses artificial intelligence and a tool that detects dry eye are just some of the more than 60 student-made projects that will be on display April 19 at Grand Valley State University's Project Day.
About 275 visitors and high school students from across Michigan will attend the event to meet with students, interact with projects and learn about careers in engineering and computing. The event is hosted by the Seymour and Esther Padnos College of Engineering and Computing.
GVSU Project Day
Thursday, April 19
10 a.m. - noon
Kennedy Hall of Engineering and Keller Engineering Labs
Pew Grand Rapids Campus
At the event, nearly 90 first-year engineering students on 27 teams will compete in a RoboSockey tournament in the Keller Labs building. Autonomous robots, built by students, will compete to find, collect and throw a ping-pong-sized ball to score a goal, while avoiding obstacles.
Padnos College hosts project days twice each academic year. Projects on display were designed and built by undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, computing and occupational safety and health management majors.
